Default Fiat Turbo

Hi, my name is Kaizad Engineer i run a small automobile workshop in Bombay.

Grew up with cars (FIATS), so i turbocharged mine and drove it in the speed run, sure you guys noticed my car . Did not win but gave the skoda a tough fight.

I would love to share my experience on how i build this lil beast ....looking forward to chat and share your experiences on making your cars.

cheers
Fiaturbo.

Kaizad,

Welcome to teambhp
Ever since I saw pics of your car , I was determined to do the same to mine..

Is there anyway you can post some pics of the way the engine and gearbox are mounted?

Welcome aboard. I had seen your fiat at the speed run and i must say that u have put a Lot of efforts in it.Couldn't imagine a fiat giving a tough time to a modern day skoda. Do share with us the performance enhancement done to the machine.

Welcome aboard Kaizad. We've heard (and seen) great things about your Fiat. The forum is full of Fiat fanatics much like myself, and you will find a treasure trove of information here, spend some time browsing each section.

Cheers
Karl

PS : We'd love to hear more about what you did with your car, and what you plan to do in the future.

A very very warm welcome. Let me get straight to the point, what steering system are you using on your contessa engined Fiat? I saw photographs where the usual steering box seems to be absent.
